The Red Kites Golf Society was formed during 2009 as a ‘playing section’ of the Holmer Green Sports Association, the Red Kites played their first game in December 2009 where they competed for the inaugural Christmas Cup. This first competition was won by Dave King (Curly).

The Red Kites play in five competitions each year:

Christmas Cup

Winter Warmer

Spring Cup

Summer Plate

The Masters

The typical format for each competition is to meet at the venue for breakfast and the Captain’s draw followed by 18 holes of golf which is followed by lunch and prize giving.

The Red Kites select different venues to play each competition at throughout each year, ranging from Wycombe Heights Golf Club to other favourites which include Studley Wood and Badgemore Park Golf Club.

Each players handicap is monitored and adjusted throughout the year based on the scores from each competition, which employs Stableford scoring. Prizes are awarded for first, second and third place along with nearest pin and longest drive.

The Masters is the end of season event and is traditionally played at premium golf courses such as The Manor House Golf Club or Woburn (to qualify to win this event, attendance at two of the previous Red Kites golf days is required) which is accompanied by a suitable end of season celebration!
